Just like you, Grub Street has to buy that crazy aunt her favorite apricot marmalade, check out some farm-to-tree ornaments, and trade in our New York Magazine mugs of crappy coffee for crystal flutes of sparkly something (and amen to that). Wishing you and yours a safe and happy holiday weekend. We'll see you — two pounds heavier and three sets of cashmere socks richer — on Tuesday. Have fun, friends!
